reform from medicare. martha, i have to tell you. i got new numbers from medicare, from trustees, actually. medicare has to pay out in the future $42 trillion. that is money which it does not now have. so you can see that this is very serious issue. cuts in spending, cuts to medicare. who will make them? it is very serious because what that kind of money outstanding you need some kind of an agreement and fast. the bottom line right now, martha, it is again an impasse. martha: that's a huge number, stuart. it was about 38 trillion just less than a year ago i believe. >> yes. martha: so that number has really ballooned to 42 trillion as stuart shares with us in terms of those numbers. let's go back to the republican side for just a moment because i think there is a discrepancy in terms of the understanding what republicans seem to be agreeing to do. there is difference between raising tax rates which they have said they will not do. so i don't see any ground being ceded on the raising of tax rates for the wealthy but the changing of loopholes that would indeed, would that produce r

republicans seem to really want is what they would call reform or spending cuts on the medicare side. you guys, your think tank released a report on how to do that while protecting seniors. if the center for american progress is saying you can cut medicare, is there common ground that can be reached here? >> i hope so. in the distant past, it was republicaned talking about ways to strengthen medicare by ensuring we are lowering health care costs. $385 billion in additional savings in medicare, but importantly, our proposals protect middle income beneficiaries. the pledge has required that republicans really go after beneficiaries. both for medicare and social security. so we're saying you can have a good deficit reduction plan that has savings in medicare, but it's important that we protect those who are vulnerable in the middle class, seniors, those on medicaid and we can do that. and one thing i would say about the pledge, there's a lot of talk about the politics and republicans moving, et cetera. the issue here is not politics when we're together. americans support this idea of basic fairne
